The Hawaiian defensive lineman was signed by the Steelers in 2000 and went on to start in all but one game in his six years with the team. The pinnacle of his tenure in the Steel City came in the 2005 season, when he was part of the squad that defeated the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL. This white, road jersey was made by Reebok and game worn by von Oelhoffen in 2001. His lengthy surname stretches from shoulder to shoulder in gold lettering on a white name plate on the back of the jersey, while his number "67" appears sewn in black on the front, back, and both shoulders. The jersey has seen fantastic use, with more than 18 team repairs visible, as well as lots of heavy wear and abrasions. The size and year and it was made can be found on a tag inside the collar, which reads "01-42". The sleeves have custom draw strings, as von Oelhoffen was ostensibly a large man. This jersey has been photo-matched to a Fleer football card. All jerseys come directly from the Steelers archive and come with an LOA from the Steelers.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Steelers Archives items will be donated to the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research
